Lemon Dijon Chicken with Potatoes

Slow cooker lemon dijon chicken and potatoes is a minimal prep dinner with maximum flavor. Serve with a salad or steamed veggies for dinner in a flash.

Lemon Dijon Chicken with Potatoes in the slow cooker.
This is definitely not the usual slow cooker fare. Or at least isn’t what comes to mind when people think of slow cooker meals. Tender chicken served with potatoes in a flavorful lemon-Dijon sauce accented with dried oregano adds a gourmet flair to the plain chicken and potato dinner.

  1. This sounds sooooo good Micha! What group are you in for SRC? Whoever gets your blog is simply the luckiest person alive. You post the best recipes! Love this one!

  2. This looks amazing!!! Does not look like chicken cooked in crockpot – definitely will be making this!! Thanks for a fantastic looking recipe!!!!

  3. What is the purpose of the Cooking Tapioca? I have never used this before. Can you make the recipe without it?

    • The quick cooking tapioca acts as a thickener.It seems to be used more in fruit pies.
      I don’t think it would hurt anything to leave it out since the potatoes absorb a lot of the liquid.

  4. Wow! That sounds so good!! Do you think this recipe would work as a freezer meal?

    • You could probably freeze the chicken and sauce before cooking then thaw and add potatoes and continue on but I wouldn’t freeze the potatoes because they might get bushy or meal.

  5. Well I made this last night because it sounded great. I was REALLY disappointed. I wasted a bunch of chicken, threw the whole pot away and ordered pizza. Just everything went wrong. The chicken was completely dry and overdone, the potatoes were mushy and there was so much herb taste you couldn’t taste anything else. Bummed!
